Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.
Nothing in Biology Makes Sense is an experiment in collaborative online science communication. Our contributors include working biologists at all career stages, studying organisms from viruses to birds, and in contexts from human medicine to tropical forests. Here, we’ll write about science that catches our interest, and try to explain why we think it’s cool, or why we think it’s crazy. With any luck, we’ll learn from each other in the process. Join us in the comments and on our Facebook page, as we make sense of the living world together.
